Unidentified Male, Bayou Body Count No. 198

A man who tried to escape from a home invasion by jumping out a second-story window died early this morning, Houston police say.

The man, whose name and age have not been released, was killed in the 8700 block of Broadway about 2:45 this morning, HPD says.

The victim came to an apartment in a complex, police say, and several men tried to break down the door. When that failed, they fired shots at the door.

The man was shot as he was trying to escape, and died at the scene.

Anyone with information in this case is urged to contact the HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3600 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
